to obama, iowa is a state where romney will have his best gains in the country where john mccain didn't in 2008. this was a 10 or 11 point race in 2008. now two, three, four would be a lot for obama. you can go back to 2004, bush won a squeaker. in 2000 gore won it by 4,000. iowa is two states. we say it's a progressive tradition. there's a ton of social conservative, religious social conservatives in western iowa and there's also a lot of these white working class middle class voters as a demo brafic have turned hard on obama across the country. iowa, they are particularly pronounced in that state. a lot more for romney to work with. your point is key, i mentioned this last week on the show. in the 1980s iowa was an exception. the national economy was strong. farm economy collapsed in iowa and iowa took it out on george bush sr. we might see the opposite where the economy is weak in a lot of places but stronger in iowa. >> iowa voted for revenge. interesting. >> great reason to vote. >> to your point that's why the social consciences that's why mike huckabee and rick santorum do wel
to the numbers you carry a lot of states. obama carried 28. i tried to look at what i think are the fundmentals in this election and see how they played out in the target state. most voters don't like barak obama and like the slulish economy that resulted from them and likely to center a less democratic electorate thap is shown in 2008 exit polls and most polls, they are tending to show nationally and independent voters going for romney. that means each party's side is relatively eating and nen partisan vote for cappedidates and independent voters break the tie. >> we have a map that is it on the screen it shows solid red as the states for romney and blue for obama and light likely obama and the pink states are light red for romney. pennsylvania, wisconsin and you say those are likely to tilt romny's way. >> wisconsin tep electorial votes is a battle ground with governor scott walker reforms affecting the bargaining terms and there was a june recall election on governor walker and he won it with 53% of the vote and his side got well organized from that. and i think that balance of enthusiasm th
on monday due to hurricane. president obama declared a state of emergency for the commonwealth of massachusetts as a result of hurricane sandy. u.s. federal offices in d.c. closed. philadelphia, the southeast pennsylvania transit authority, septa as its called, will suspend all services at the end of the sunday service. listening, they're not playing around, if you're in any of these areas, you need to listen to what your officials are telling us. george howell is in kill devil hills, north carolina. george, you have been out there all day. tell me how the weather has intensified. >> reporter: don, i can tell you right now we are actually getting a break in the wind. the winds are dying down a bit, but they are also shifting. we can tell that's happening, and that strong rain is backing off, but this storm continues to move to the north and it is changing hour by hour. here within the last few hours we've been in touch with emergency management officials here in dare county just to find out what they're dealing with. they're dealing with the flooding that's happening throughout
, and too close to call, in no fewer than ten swing states but the obama campaign and its media allies are questioning whether mitt romney's recent momentum is real. joining the panel his week, dan henning gary, james freeman, dorothy rabinowitz and kim strassel. kim, tell us how real the romney surge is. >> look, paul, i know two weeks is one side increasing its advantage in both the national polls and the swing state polls. that's romney. we have seen money flowing into that side. that's romney. we have seen him improve his performance in independents and womens. you can call it what you want and the media contends it isn't momentum but i bet the president's campaign is wishing they that that momentum. >> to that point, yes, the obama campaign wishes it had some of that momentum because i tell you what really going on. the president is flatlining. >> i think he hit a ceiling for two reasons. his approval rating hit a ceiling as far back as april. this president has been around 47 or 48% all through the year. there's no lift to the obama presidency, and now that he and romney have com
election day, president obama and governor mitt romney are crisscrossing key battleground states, governor romney holding three rallies in florida, and president obama stopped in new hampshire and talk about his promise for the future. >> the unemployment rate is falling. manufacturing, coming back to our shores. our assembly lines are humming again. housing prices are starting to pick up. housing starts are on the move. we have a lot of work to do but, new hampshire, the country has come too far for us to turn back now. >> governor romney holding three rallies across florida today where he is calling for more partisan cooperation in washington. i'll see you again on the fox news channel at 6:00 eastern. right now we go back to "the journal editorial report",. >> welcome would to journal -- "the journal editorial report." aisle paul gigot. the election focuses on a mall group of key states but not the states either campaign or the political pundits might have expected. wisconsin, pennsylvania, and michigan, all of which president obama carried by double digits in 2008. my guess t
the national turnout. host: barack obama losing the pennsylvania primary to hillary clinton but when the state in the general election four years ago. this point -- living in the heart of pennsylvania, i can assure you that obama was right to say how people cling to to their guns and religion. will that resonate in 2012? guest: that as a comment that has certainly stuck with a lot of pennsylvanian, particularly in the southwestern part, the more conservative democratic areas. the president made that statement in a san francisco fund-raiser in the midst of the democratic primary in pennsylvania in march and april, that primary in 2008. we six week period where there was literally nothing else going on in the campaign except the upcoming pennsylvania primary. that became a huge issue. what it does remind voters, particularly in the southwestern part of the state, of the president's position on guns. pennsylvania is a strong nra pro-gun state. it has been difficult for gun control advocates to get legislation through pennsylvania changing the gun laws here. i do not see any opportunity -- there i
tradition in this state. the fact that it's an obama fire wall is what is remarkable. this is a state that mitt romney could do well. he should do well. running the obama's campaign core strategy appealing to middle class voters, working class whites in this state makes a big difference when it comes to ground game and that critical early voting. mitt romney has had a real problem connecting to those folks. >> who is he leading with in ohio? >> president obama is leading with women. he's leading with centrist business 0 points. losing independents by two points. losing white men by a considerable margin. leading with folks who make undered 50 e$50,000 a year. so the national themes are evident here in ohio. >> when you say independents and centrists, you're describing them as two separate things. a lot of viewers think independents means centrists. >> in the past, they have. one of the fascinating things about this election, the impact of the tea party on independent voters, it moved them to the right. so you see independents edging toward mitt romney. president obama has had a decide
, traveling with president obama. let's start here in ohio. the state has a very complex economy. here's some of what we've been hearing from voters on this trip. >> just a lot of depressed areas. a lot of joblessness. >> just looking at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me. >> the last four years has not been very good for our small business. >> with the debt crisis, our country has, that burden is going to be on us in the future. >> all of the skills i had are obsolete now. >> i'm not up at the white house. i don't see rich people all the time. i see a lot of poor people. >> shut down, closed, reduced wages, ship the jobs overseas. we lost 55,000 factories. >> we're probably never have the things that we did 30, 40 years ago. >> balance the budget. we keep spending more and more. somewhere along the line it's going to come back and haunt us. >> they didn't plan for us. now we have to clean up the mess that they made. >> john avalon joins me now. we have been on that bus from florida through north carolina, through virginia, through and into ohio. the economy is number one concern. onc
we know right now. president obama has declared states of emergency in several mid atlantic and northeastern states including maryland, new jersey, new york and connecticut. fema, the federal emergency management agency established emergency operations centers in those places to coordinate preparations and disaster relief. >>> hurricane sandy knocked out electricity to more than 5,000 customers in new jersey so far. officials warn that number will grow into the hundreds of thousands. >>> sandy is being blamed for 65 deaths in the caribbean, 51 in haiti where residents endured three days of constant rain. >>> just this morning, a 17-man crew was forced to abandon the hms bounty after getting caught in sandy's high seas off the coast of carolina. the coast guard says the members safely boarded two life rafts. >>> this storm is shaping up to be a travel nightmare. nearly 7,500 flights canceled in the northeast while amtrak suspended service in the northeast corridor. the show must go on for comedians jimmy fallon, jimmy kimmel. they're both saying they'll go ahead with tapings
to be hunkering down in ohio a state he needs to be better in. president obama is going to be stuck at the white house. and he went to florida tonight so he could be in place for a rally tomorrow. he may regret going there at all because he'll be coming back to the white house to monitor the storm, but it's going to be halting a lot of political activity going forward into wednesday. maybe even thursday, but right now the white house is looking at canceling even more events, potentially another event that the president was going to be having in wisconsin on tuesday night. so, it looks like we're coming to a stand still for a couple of days here. >> geraldo: so, you have both governor romney and president obama trying to balance the fact that the election is eight, nine days away, with the, first of all, the perception that they have to be paying attention, they have to be-- the president literally has to be there in command as commander-in-chief, it's a very, very difficult balancing act for them and it comes at a time. i have the polls in front of me, erin, i'd like to run over with you. first
on on education, science, and technology. it is bad for youngstown state, and obama's plan is better for the future of america. obama's education plan is better for the future of america. he is committed to hiring 100,00 0 new science, technology, and math teachers. committed to cutting the rate of inflation of college costs in half and to the student loan reform program, the single most important thing nobdody knows about. this alone justifies his reelection if you believe in the future. the old student loan system worked like -- the federal government paid the banks to make loands and guaranteed 93% of the loans. the new system -- under that old system, it meant we dropeped to 16th in the world in college degrees. a perscription for disaster. almost every job is created by someone with a degree. we can't afford to be 16th in the world. so what did the president and congress do? what did congressman ryan do? they passed a law to change the system. we say, here are the people who qualify and the yget the loans at a lower interest rate. every student in the country who gets one of the
chief white house correspondent ed henry traveling with president obama's campaign in the battleground state of new hampshire. that's coming up. >>> speaking of the weather, this is a fox extreme weather alert. hurricane sandy's path is looking more ominous by the hour as it barrels up the eastern seaboard. the monster storm is already battering the mid-atlantic states with punishing wind and rain. sandy is expected to collide with antarctic air blast as it reaches the northeast which is bringing a so-called super storm to the heavily populated areas in the region. right now we check in with our meteorologist live in the weather center. maria, how is it looking? is it looking as bad as you are forecasting? >> it does not look good. we have a number of ingredients going on. we don't only have the tropical aspect of the storm system, but we also have some very cold air that will be in place on the western end of the storm. you will be talking about heavy snow, locally up to two feet possible across parts of the state of west virginia. many will be out of power and we will get that cold b
states. president obama has cancelled a stop in virginia on monday and colorado event on tuesday. he will leave tonight, though, for an event in florida and return to washington to monitor the storm. the white house says the president is getting regular updates on sandy and one democratic strategist says all presidents have to balance a lot of things at once. >> this is part of his life. i think all hurricane sandy sort of add another wrinkle to what a which v challenging job. >> governor rom had planned on campaign in virginia today. he talked to the governor and two decided the state emergency personnel need to focus on storm prep and not on political events. here is what governor romney said about the storm. >> keep the folks in new jersey and new york and in your minds and hearts. nowhow tough these hurricanes can be. >> governor romney went to ohio and linked up with paul ryan. two of them will campaign all day in that key battleground state. >> gregg: molly henneberg, thanks. >> just a short time ago the rom campaign made and announcement. they have stopped fund-raising, e-mail
with obama having a steady lead. it is a democratic leaning state these days. there has not been an awful lot of campaign activity in terms of visits by the candidates or advertising. they have now really targeted the state this year on like 2008 in the last previous four cycles. host: there has been an awful lot of advertising in the senate races. your polls are showing that the senate race has been considerably closer. he is still holding onto a slight lead, seven points over republican tom smith. what has been happening in that race? caller: is a simple matter if you spend $17 million of your own money, you can get hearing from people. the senator is a member of an institution that is not really very popular these days, the congress. smith is gaining traction just on the strength of his message. and introducing himself to voters. that could be one of the surprises on election night. host: what can republicans read in these polling numbers? caller: on the presidential race? president obama is up 49%, still below 50%. it seems pennsylvania could be a little bit more competitive if they made
the ability to try things out for yourself if romney gets a certain state, if president obama gets a certain state. but this is something brand new here that i want you to see here. you can click on any state in the country and find out how much money each of the candidates have spent there, how many times they've visited there and how much money they have raised there. for example, you're in ohio. this shows here how much money president obama has spent and in that same time frame how much money mitt romney has spend. also how much of the spending went tol negative ads versus positive ads. fascinating. and then what you can do is compare any two states in any category. so take a look here. i was wondering how often the candidates have visited ohio and how often they visited colorado. so i typed in those two states and it shows me how many times in this campaign season they visited each and then you can snapshot each. you can take it and post it on twitter and facebook. speaking of facebook there was a study that find that facebook really can help get people to the poles. the i'm voting app
know what is going to be the result. maryland, only four states did better for obama than maryland. it's lock. virginia might be pivotal and maybe with the benefit of hindsight, we could have said, if romney had spent more time in virginia, although they've both spent so much time here, by canceling one event in virginia beach, i don't think it is going to make a difference. >> all right. fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin, thank you and stay safe. >> thank you. >> all right. that is just -- that just shows you how strong the storm is expected to be if we are talking about next week. this is not by any means a stretch of the imagination. >> yeah, the real key here. this is uncharted territory. we really haven't ever seen a storm like this sort of make that left hook this late in the season. the wind field is so expansive, all the way from maine to the carolinas, they are getting tropical force wind. it is very powerful. don't be fooled. it doesn't mean it is not still on the way. it will get steadily worse during the course of the day. the wind will be gusting 55, 65, maybe even 70
the devastating view. president obama gets an up close view of the devastation across the state of new jersey. and i spent the day today in hoboken, new jersey, just across the hudson river from manhattan. tonight national guard troops are still going through the floodwaters trying to rescue people trapped in their homes. >>> one of the largest hospitals in new york is being evacuated at this moment, the second hospital forced to be evacuated after losing power and relying on backup generators. the president of the hospital will join us live. let's go "out front." good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. search and rescue. two days after one of the most devastating storms to hit the east coast of the united states, there's frustration, desperation, fear. people are cold, people are tired and people are hungry. dramatic scenes like this are playing out in new jersey and new york. watch this rescuer from the new york police department lowering himself onto a home in staten island, new york and a resident pulled through the roof and back to safety. police say just this one helicopter rescued fi
hard in the swing states looking for every last vote. president obama has eight stops on his agenda from now until monday, including two separate trips to ohio. myth romney has six states on his travel plans, two stops each in ohio, iowa and colorado. >> it's been taking some voters up to four hours to cast their ballots in florida. you know, that's one of the most crucial swing states. remember, early voting in florida started a week later than it did in 2008 because of a new state law. the republican state legislature reduced the number of early voting days from 14 to 8. there are 29 electoral votes up for grabs in florida. >>> the death toll from sandy has climbed to 106 people, and nearly half of those deaths are in new york. nearly 2.7 people, 2.7 million people are without power for at least another day that. number slowly going down as power crews work feverishly. many people are desperate for fuel, heat and food. new jersey is now rationing gasoline to cut down on long lines. >> story full four, its journey may have lacked the fanfare of "endeavour" but the space shuttle atl
battleground state in the state of ohio this is a place where the obama campaign worked very hard in early voting in the african-american community in the cleveland area, right here, cuyahoga county here. i'll draw a big line, cleveland, the cleveland suburbs and to a lesser degree down here to the south in the akron area people without power, put it to the same test, how did they vote in 2008, you see some republicans in the more rural counties but across the top of the state the northern part of the state heavy democratic areas, our producer called out too cuyahoga today early voting down a bit today than it was four years ago so you see some obvious immediate impact. the question is again, with the few more days to go, five more days can they get this fixed come election day. one more quick example in the northern virginia suburbs and again to the naked eye it tells the story. still a lot of people out right on the northern washington d.c. area, right there, fairfax county, arlington, go back four years, you see all that blue, this is the area most critical to president obama. he has to
's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "washington post" poll has president obama clinging to a four-point lead. last month it was an eight-point difference. shall we go to ohio? >> i want to talk about virginia for a second. mark, republicans got some
. the united states pledging quick relief for the millions of victims of the hurricanes. today president obama is scheduling to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. this morning the associated press reports the storm killed at least 50 people. there are more than 8.2 million households still without power across 17 states. and many of the outages could last beyond election day. between damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same cannot be said for laguardia. jetblue posted these photos of the runways submerged. more than 18,000 flights have already been canceled as a result of sandy. and police had to take to the air to save victims from rooftops in staten island after floodwaters surrounded their homes. they were loaded one by one in
it makes our children #1. >>> president obama declared a state of emergency in delaware on monday and sandy has been pounding the state. gary tuchman is live for us. what's been going on there? it's been up and down all day. i've been watching your reports. tell me where we are now? >> great concern for the last couple of days who live here about the approach of sandy. this city sits on delmarva pennsylvania, three states, delaware, maryland, virginia, that's why delmarva. people were very scared. as it turns out, the center of sandy, 40 miles to the north near atlantic city, new jersey. the weaker end of the storm hit the town here. much flooding, cars under water, many homes that are damaged, streets under water. and four bette towns here. they've lost sand. however, the most important news, appears there are no casualties at this point. that is most important part of the story. also important to point out lots of power failures as well as the east coast. we've covered a lot of hurricanes but never when it's so cold out. a lot of people without power and no heat. that's tough. people for
will be in a new jersey today. torrington the state with chris christie. -- touring the state with chris christie. mitt romney will hold three rallies and florida. and a lot of political back-and- forth this morning in the papers about new jersey gov. chris christie praising president obama for a great job for quick action. that is the headline in the the washington times. they note that yesterday the president at red cross visit had this to say, the president made clear that he is expecting the team to remain focused. -- this is a quote from the white house. the president made clear that he is expecting the team to remain focused and lean forward in their response. as a lean forward is the slogan of msnbc, and the slogan of his re-election campaign. they going to say what chris christie had to say to many networks yesterday including to fox and news cumming was asked if governor romney might come to new jersey in view the damage. he replied, i have no idea. nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have a job to do here that is much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less
the obama campaign is now going to go by advertising in some of these states as well. minnesota, and michigan and pennsylvania for some of this late romney moved. pennsylvania i don't really buy that its competitive. i've been keeping a close eye on it for a long time, but if it's going to be then it's going to be competitive because republicans are going to be able to turn out a large number of voters in the western half of the state, pittsburgh, johnstown the user be held by jack murtha is told by congressman mark chris was the only district in the country to vote for john kerry in 2004 and john mccain in 2008 the only from d to are in the election and those are the voters that president obama once derided to their guns in the region and they are the exact kind of white working-class voters having the most trouble connecting with. succumb if the republicans are going to put in play the will to live in a sneak attack way and on the western half of the state the obama campaign as well by the way they've got to turn out machine the philadelphia there's a reason some of these are
. lastly, will it disrupt early voting? which is what the obama administration wanted? states like virginia or ohio? there is no storms in northeastern ohio, democratic country, as was indicated earlier, virginia, it hitsteamic area and republican arizona. it's probably a washington. it will be a three-day hiatus out of the political counter and will resume in week where we were in the beginning of the week. >> what about the romney evideneffort and how it transpid today? holding this evident to raise both funds and food stuff, and kind of, you know, talk about giving and how that played today? >> what else do you do? >> bret: right. >> a moment fraught with peril for the challenger particularly. you don't want to be accused and the press is a hair trigger when it comes to accusing romney of misusing the moment. >> bret: then he did today. >> of course, but you don't want to be accused. that is fair or unfair. >> every day i wake up for two weeks and say maybe it's frozen in stone. maybe the race is already decided. i don't know the outcome but the people who don't know who they are going t
years, you see all that blue. this is the area most critical to president obama. he has to win the state of virginia. again, when you call to these communities, they think they'll get it fixed in time for tuesday. >> john, when you talked to the two campaigns, i know this is -- they don't want to talk about it, but does either see this benefiting them? >> it's fascinating that they give you the same answer and how rare is it that they will do that on a question? they say we're not going to talk about that. it would be insensitive and it would be wrong. but then privately, they say for the most part, think they it's a wash, especially if the power comes back on. the obama campaign is worried about the early voting. the ads have not come out and they have not been as active. so they're still slugging it out on the airwaves. privately, both campaigns think if there's any benefit, it will be a benefit to the president of the united states. but both sides think if it is, it's slight. >> thank you very much, john king. coming up next, we're going to show you the pictures and tell you about the
on the election that is just nine days away. president obama, he has had to cancel some of his campaign events both foam and tuesday, including his final trips to virginia, colorado, both crucial swing states. instead we're told the president will be spineding more time in the white house monitoring this storm. as for his challenger, similar situation with mitt romney. he is having to make some changes as well because of this hurricane. he has canceled all of his campaign events in virginia, and will now join husband running mate join paul ryan on a bus tour through the mother of all swing states, mother of all battle grounds in ohio, the republican mom knee that will also be campaigning in iowa, wisconsin, and new hampshire through tuesday. speaking of iowa, mitt romney is getting a boost from that state. did you check the des moines register just last night. this is just in here. they have now officially endorsed the republican candidate. a strong record of achievement in both the private and public sectors and ran a successful business that turned around failing companies. keep many mind, t
. you don't hear about them anymore. since president obama had a lead in most of these swing states, i think political analysts would say it is probably -- doesn't hurt president obama any. on the other side of the net mitt romney has been able to unpack in ohio for a few days, shake a few more hands kiss a few more babies, give a few more press conferences and speeches there. we'll see how it plays out in election night. right now i don't think it's had the impact on this election. it is just -- and votingwise. at least there's no evidence of it yet. we'll see, you know, the stock market opens tomorrow. how will the markets respond to this? you know, you can have a -- the economy rebounding and the president with good p.r., could be a dismal stock market going down and people get jittery and think they want change. but i could tell you this. president obama's done a marvelous job of holding our country and the people here up in the right way. everything he's done so far i think has been pitch perfect. >> jennifer: w
that we're in a tie. the swing state data showing ever so slight obama lead, within the margin of error. ohio couple points up. through the midwest, wisconsin, michigan, minnesota, a couple points up, a couple points up in pennsylvania. ever so slight obama lead there. but it could go either way. martha: monica? >> yeah. what is interesting we're seeing the traditional tightening of a race as we get closer and closer to election day. what is interesting that independent number you put you, martha, governor romney still has a very healthy lead among independents and doug mentioned the swing states, when you look at critical swing states states of ohio, governor romney is leading among independents by six points n virginia he is leading among independents by a staggering 21 points among independents. also in florida he is leading by about five points. races are won in the middle. those independents will really decide this race and they seem to be trending toward governor romney. martha: let's look at some of these other numbers. i was fascinated by these when they came out in the evening
